Dutch dance luminary Fedde Le Grand is never short of surprises. Whether it be his groundbreaking ‘GRAND’ concept, which fuses live music with acrobatics, or his recent collaboration with designer sneaker brand Nubikk, Fedde has always managed to keep fans on their toes over his illustrious career. Now he is back with ‘Firestarter’, a link-up with reggae legend and Grammy winner Shaggy as well as long-time collaborator and Danish star Ida Corr. Out via Darklight Recordings, the track can be streamed and downloaded below.
Listen to ‘Firestarter’

A reunion between Fedde and Ida after 2007 runaway hit ‘Let Me Think About It’ as well as another get-together between Ida and Shaggy following their collaboration on ‘Under The Sun’, ‘Firestarter’ successfully couples them all for the very first time, proving that three is certainly not a crowd. Shaggy’s timeless flow and iconic tone neatly complements Ida’s fierce diva vocals, while both parts are underpinned by jacked-up horns and a dancehall beat courtesy of Fedde. A blend of EDM, ragga and pop, this one will undoubtedly be getting the fire started on dance floors around the globe in the coming months.
Coupled with the track comes a comic book-style music video, storyboarded and directed by Dutch videographer Eauxby. Captain Darklight (Fedde Le Grand) uses his powers to stop Mother Nature (Ida Corr) from destroying the earth, but is overcome with her strength. Luckily, Diligitis, God Of Love (Shaggy), is there to save the day with his seductive ways. Tongue-in-cheek and also veering on the political, the video serves as the perfect accompaniment to this upbeat record.

Still in his celebratory twentieth year, Chicane is currently working on his next studio album on an island off the British coast. But that doesn’t mean he can’t come up with yet another mind-dazzling offering in the meantime. Co-written by Spanish-born songwriter, chantress, DJ and fashion blogger Barbarella, ‘How Does Your House Work’ saw its release today on Chicane’s own label, Modena Records.

Watch the video ‘How Does Your House Work’

Supported by additional mixes from Danny Dove and Après, ‘How Does Your House Work’ is a magnificent blend of nostalgia and Ibiza-flavored vibes. Its power comes from the anthemic piano chords and thumping bassline, all of which culminates in one exceptional release when paired with the before-mentioned feel-good atmosphere of the record. It has the classic Chicane feel to it and is sure to leave his loyal fanbase satisfied.


Throughout his illustrious, twenty-year-long career, Chicane has become nothing short of a living legend. His near-ancient, highly-acclaimed classics ‘Offshore’ (1996), ‘Saltwater’ (1999) and ‘Don’t Give Up’ (feat. Bryan Adams) (2000) dominated charts across the globe and have remained a staple in dance music to this day. The list of memorable Chicane productions goes on and on and ‘How Does Your House Work’ marks another impressive addition to his phenomenal track record.
